The post explains a simple obstacle avoiding robot circuit without microcontroller and without using special motor driver circuits or ICs. The idea was requested by Mr. Faiyyaz
One of the key elements used in the industry of the electronics is the switches. The various different types of tasks for which the switches are used include providing the power supply to a circuit and selection of a specific element for the circuit which will be used in a given specific application or operation.
There are many different names by which the LDR (Light Dependent Resistors) are known as and includes names such as photoresistor, photocell, photoconductive cell, and photoconductor.
The thermistor name has been devised as a short form for the “thermally sensitive resistor”. The full form of the thermistor provides the general and the detailed idea of the action which is the feature of the thermistor.
The industry of electronic circuits uses resistors of various different types available in the market. The properties of these resistors vary and are different for each type being ruled by their manufacturing and construction process.

The post comprehensively explains regarding the various standard resistor color codes, and systems employed for assigning resistors their specific values. The post also explains how to read and identify resistor values from their color codes.
As electronics enthusiasts we may come across many kinds of resistors, from small fixed resistor to high current bulk rheostat. There are humongous classifications among resistors, but here we will focus on a particular kind of resistor called “flex resistor” and learn how it works.
